Break ups are bad, mean, hurtful, and heartbreaking. I’m experiencing the worst one of my life. And while there isn’t anything to do, but look to the future, my Pandora has been my best friend. Man she’s been nailing it with empowering music. Making me feel like I can conquer it all. It’s been a crazy, mean, couple of days. I don’t know when the pain will leave, but at the moment all I know is that through P!nk, Katy Perry, and Kelly Clarkson, I’m getting a little bit stronger. Who knew music could be the best pain killer ever. Literally. I scream the lyrics off the top of my lungs every chance I get (mainly in the shower and in the car).
I know I’m not only lonely, broken, girl out there. And if you are one too, I’m just letting you know, I got you. Times are tough, but how the saying goes “time heals all wounds.” I’m spending that time listening to music. Smiling. Attempting to be happy. Crying a little. But, getting the flippin’ over it.
Here is my coping music. Feel free to jam out, cry, and smile– because YOU are way better off. AND you are more than valuable.
1. Stronger (What doesn’t kill you) by Kelly Clarkson
You think you got the best of me
Think you had the last laugh
Bet you think that everything good is gone
Think you left me broken down
Think that I’d come running back
Baby you don’t know me, cause you’re dead wrong
2. Roar by Katy Perry
Now I’m floating like a butterfly
Stinging like a bee I earned my stripes
I went from zero, to my own hero
3. Part of Me by Katy Perry
You chewed me up
And spit me out
Like I was poison in your mouth
You took my light
You drained me down
But that was then
And this is now
Now look at me!
This is the part of me
That you’re never gonna ever take away from me, no
4. So What by P!nk
So, so what?
I’m still a rock star
I got my rock moves
And I don’t need you
And guess what
I’m having more fun
And now that we’re done
I’m gonna show you tonight
5. Blow Me (One Last Kiss) by P!nk
Eyes on fire, eyes on fire, and they burn from all the tears
I’ve been crying, I’ve been crying, I’ve been dying over you
Tie a knot in the rope, tryin’ to hold, tryin’ to hold,
But there’s nothing to grab so I let go
I think I’ve finally had enough, I think I maybe think too much
I think this might be it for us (blow me one last kiss)
You think I’m just too serious, I think you’re full of shit
My head is spinning so (blow me one last kiss).
Note: Watching the video makes the pain not as bad. Seriously scream these lyrics, get “him” out of your head!
If you have good jams. Send them way, goodness knows I need them now more than anything.
